A tough match against Harrow A team in the Hillingdon cup semi-final. Outgraded, and defaulting one board with a late withdrawal, we went down 0.5 vs 4.5. Hristo succumbed to a king side attack, Jason got some pressure with his Birds opening but eventually fell to a knight fork. Mark’s opponent, as white, played D4, Nf6, Nc3 – a fairly quiet game ensued and Mark’s advance on the queen side prevented too much happening on the king side, and a draw followed. Alastair played a Ruy Lopez which looked even until a sacrifice of a minor piece for two pawns failed to bring enough return. Good luck to Harrow in the final.
